White Supremacists Show Up To A City That Didn’t Want Them, Chant ‘Blood And Soil’
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. ― Once again, white supremacists and the aggressive fringe groups that show up to meet them took over an American city that never wanted them in the first place, enveloping the area in violence and arrests and causing a state of emergency.

This kind of thing should be nipped in the bud. I am sure we all agree about freedom of speech, but as the Governor of Virginia said, a right to speech is not a right to violence. It is also not a right to intimidate... therefore should have been stopped as quickly as was practical.

Why are they holding Tiki torches? Kinda strange to have a Polynesian theme to a white supremacist gathering.

It is easier to march down to a Walmart and pick up a Tiki torch than it is to build one!

Below is the Klan pre-Tiki Torch

I do not see much of a difference simply because one has a homemade torch and another has a torch bought at a store. They are still the bigots of the worst kind - a righteous bigot who believes his particular birth is important.

Look at them! They are all the same!! And, what do they want? To oppress others!! We, on the other hand, simply want others to lead their own lives without harming others, to be who they are and to answer that for themselves and not let others answer it for them.

Fascists are deathly afraid of mosquitos, their natural enemy. Hence the citronella tiki torches.

Their actions make me sick, I cannot understand hatred towards another human, or any animals. It's a kind of group mentality thingy. I'll bet if you pulled one aside and got them on their own to speak truthfully to anyone about their views and what happened they would be very ashamed of their weekend's terribleness. If I am wrong, then they are nothing but evil and that would be very sad.

I don't have internet at home. I've been off the last two days. I get news slow.

So yesterday, Haley comes home looking dazed and turns to me saying, "A person...on American soil...was killed by a nazi the other day."

That was random. Me, "What?"

"Yeah, since they're pulling down all the confederate monuments all the white supremacists, KKK, Neo Nazi's...all of them...they're protesting. Some people started protesting back and one drove his car into the crowd and killed a girl."

I still haven't checked the news now that I'm at work. What the hell is happening to my country?!

This explains why my dad was noticeably quiet about politics yesterday (he's right wing conservative). He's usually going on about liberals and all the "evil, stupid things we do".
I wonder what he's thinking...

I don't think I understand the question...do you mean, why are we allowing these travesties to occur in our nation?

The stench of Hitler's Brown Shirts with their hatred fueled rabble running rampant while the powers that be turn a blind eye is in the air. I'm a bit terrified of what may be on the horizon. We seem to devolve a little more every day. Canada is on my mind a lot these days.

I am not sure I understand my question.

    We are tossed hither and thither with situations we can not handle and no one is there with help.

    We have a President who tosses around the thought of war as if it was some game from a comic book.

    We have a group of losers whose only respite is to march en masse against their supposed oppressors.

    We have religious leaders who need their devils to survive and those devils include us and we have no where to turn to escape these devils.

    There is more I don't understand but this getting too fucking tiring.
